Revenues grew by 8% to approximately £800m as sales volumes of aggregates increased by 4%, asphalt by 8% and cement by 6%, while ready-mixed concrete volumes declined by 5%.

The integration of Lagan was now largely complete and the company said it remained confident of delivering its anticipated annual cost synergies.

'Assuming no materially adverse weather conditions for the remainder of the year, the group's Underlying EBIT (earnings) for the full year is expected to be in line with current market expectations,' Breedon said. Current market expectations for Underlying EBIT was in the range of £114m to £118m.
